Keeping Your Skin In Good Condition

Keep skin in good condition requires a minimum of three steps.

  1. Cleanse thoroughly with a product that does not rob or strip the skin of its natural conditioners.
  1. Tone the skin with an astringent or freshener/toner.
  1. Moisturize the skin to make up for the unavoidable losses it sustains from aging and exposure to the environment.
The skin should be cleanse daily with an appropriate skin-cleansing product. Ordinary soaps are not recommended for cleansing since they are generally alkaline and can strip the skin of its protective acid mantle.Using toners sometimes called tonic lotions helps to further cleanse the skin while bringing it back to a normal pH.The final step is moisturizing which helps keep the skin smooth.

What products do you use to cleanse and moisturize your skin?

What are your must haves? facial steamers,mac volcanic ash? I just love that exfoliator.
